In  the first album he sometimes uses a dark dense "rocker" low register, but is a similar case that Woody Leffel´s one, i think this dense tone is "artificial". The relaxed singing, for example in Shangrila with melody centered in A4 is too light and "easy-sounding" for a standard tenor.
Moreover his high range is reaaaaally large. He uses a lot of head voice (for example the first scream of Like you never before or the G#5 of All your love) but a lot of chesty/mixed notes too (first G#5 of Love ain´t easy, A5 of Sheila) , and they´re too easy for him.
He sings with chesty/mixed voice a lot of melodies in the mid-high 5th octave and sustains them quite easily too (in his best age: first disc and the previous demos)
Relaxed singing around C5/Eb5 in She´s gone chorus is another good example, it sounds different  than the mid tenor typical sound in that area

He is a tenor, plain and simple. The debate ends here. Whistle 

PS: compare his voice to somebody like David Surkamp and tell me it's as light and feminine. No. Having a very high range doesn't tell much about tessitura or tonalities. Let's let it rest.

He does have some pretty feminine moments, though, I'll actually admit that much. But yeah, he doesn't quite reach the level of no-nutness that folks like David Surkamp and '70s Geddy Lee embody.

Do you guys think the fry C♯2s from "Love 'em and I'm Gone" are worth counting, or are they too gurgly?

0:42 is one example, though it's repeated several times throughout the song.

That'll be the one mentioned back on page 2. I think the consensus was C#2 but probably not him.

2:32 and 4:52 definitely noteworthy stuff


1:25 also a really nice descending lick, worth adding

I find it incredible how great the guy still sounds at his age

the highest note he could reach without falsetto was G♯5.

How are any of his notes above that more falsetto than his G♯5s? The only one that I can think of is the one from the song "Steelheart", which is just a lot more piercing than his normal highs, but stuff like the "Love Ain't Easy" B5 and the "Sheila" B♭5s sound like exactly the same register as the rest of his highs.

I'm pretty sure the chest voice register doesn't extend that high in men. Facepalm

Spoiler:
Like with most vocalists in this genre, most of those notes are pure, powerful head voice.

Yes, in a manner that pretty clearly implied that it was in response to someone else, except that nobody else had said anything about it.

I don't really know what they meant. What other methods of singing could they possibly be referring to?

I actually think they meant "head voice" when they said "falsetto", so he's basically saying that he uses chest voice instead of head voice until G♯5.

If I'm wrong with what they meant, please kill me.

Youre not the only one who's experienced the confusion between falsetto and head voice, man.

I honestly still do not see that much of a difference between head voice and falsetto.

I am going to be murdered for saying that.

Just noticed this passage from Mili's wikipedia page:

"Steelheart’s next effort, “Tangled In Reins” was a much more mixed combination than the debut, with songs like “Sticky Side Up” to ballads such as “Mama Don’t You Cry”. Also, the song, “Steelheart”, featured Matijevic hitting his highest note of the three albums."

Is that B.S. or did we missing something in that song?

It is. That song is commonly misrecognized as having Matijevic's highest note, just because the A5s in it are so piercing that they give that impression. But anyone who actually bothers to check the pitches can assure you that his songs with B♭5s and B5s do, in fact, get higher than that.
